Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 6 hours
Total time: 6 hours 5 mins
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/2 cup coffee cream (1/2 & 1/2)
  • 2 Tablespoons raw cane sugar, brown sugar, or maple syrup
  • 1 medium apple, washed and grated
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce or apple butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
Instructions
  1. In a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, mix together all the ingredients except the water, and combine well. Add the water and slowly mix to combine.
  2. Place the measuring cup in the bottom of a slow-cooker and nearly fill it with room temperature water. It should come up the edges of the Pyrex cup to the same level as the oatmeal.
  3. Cover slow-cooker and place on Low. Cook for 6 hours.
  4. In the morning, remove lid carefully and take out the Pyrex cup. Give the oatmeal a good stir, then portion into four bowls. Serve with cream, fresh chopped apples and toasted walnuts.
